America’s “Most Livable City” maybe not so livable
This is kind of sad. We ranked number 61 out of the 67 largest cities in the National Resources Defence Council Study.
One of the highlights, according to the NRDC: “Providing a range of less-polluting public transportation options is one of the most important actions local governments can take to mitigate climate change and promote cleaner, safer cities. Our survey focused on this issue by asking respondents what transportation options were available to residents. These included bicycle paths, bicycle sharing programs, bus systems, carpool lanes, car sharing, dedicated bicycle lanes, light rail, sidewalks/trails, subways and trolleys.”
Don’t believe the “green” hype until we see some results.
